What can Vapor Pins do?

Vapor Intrusion Studies

Vapor Pin® sampling devices are used world-wide for the collection of sub-slab data used in support of comprehensive and defendable vapor intrusion evaluations. Vapor Pin® sampling devices provide secure, leak-proof conduits to the sub-slab environment required for the collection of high-quality sub-slab soil-gas samples and differential pressure readings. Vapor Pin® devices are easily and securely connected to a wide variety of sampling media (canisters, evaluated vials, and sorbents) and detection instruments (PIDs, multi-gas analyzers, manometers, and pressure transducers). In addition, Vapor Pin® devices can facilitate active and passive sub-slab soil-gas sampling techniques.

VAPOR PIN® / About

The VAPOR PIN® sampling device is made in the USA and is protected by US Patent # 8,220,347 B2, US 9,291,531 B2, BR 11 2018 004186-6, EU 16888475.7.

Following its introduction in 2011, Vapor Pin® has become the global standard for vapour intrusion investigations, mitigation testing, source characterisation, active soil gas sampling, long-term monitoring and pressure testing.

Reduces sampling time by allowing the collection of more samples for less cost, providing a better understanding of room conditions.
